Beaches & Parks

Kejimkujik Nation Park Seaside Adjunct

Kejimkujik National Park Seaside Adjunct: 15 minutes away

To experience this unspoiled and protected coastline, you will need to be prepared to walk the well maintained Harbour Rocks trail loop of 5.2 km but well worth the effort. Once you get to the overlook, you have an amazing open view with headlands, islands, and bays. The crystal white sands and turquoise waters will make you think you’ve stepped onto a Caribbean beach in the North Atlantic! With seals basking on the rocks and very cold water, a reminder that you are in a unique part of the world. Check in advance to see if the rare Piping plovers are nesting since there will be limited access to walking along the long stretch of beach. Make sure to bring bug spray, hat, and sunscreen and refreshments since there are no facilities at the beach but there are washrooms in the parking lot.

Summerville Beach Provincial Park: 5 minutes away

One of the most beautiful beaches on the South Shore of Nova Scotia. The park offers easy access to the beach via boardwalks over protected sand dunes and steps down to a long stretch of uncrowded fine sand beach. The Broad River flows into the Atlantic and the sun warms up the beaches at low tide making this one of the warmer waters in the summer and early fall as the tide comes in. Plenty of parking, washrooms, and change rooms available.

White Point Beach Resort 5 minutes away

Located on the property of White Point Beach Resort. The original lodge built in 1928 used to host trophy fishermen and hunters arriving by steamship from Boston or trains from the US and Canada. The Resort now offers surf lessons, kayaking, and guided fishing for trout, small mouthed bass or mackerel. There are day passes available at the front desk that offers access to the beach, swimming pool, walking trails, arts and crafts, and more.  There is also a 9 hole, par 35 golf course with panoramic views of the Atlantic.

Beach Meadows Municipal Beach 20 minutes away

A kilometre of white sandy beach with plenty of parking and easy access to the beach. Here you will have a full view of Coffin Island where you can see the remains of a fishing village on the Island and one of Queen’s County lighthouses. There are washrooms and change rooms available. Dogs permitted on a leash.

Carters Beach, Port Mouton 10 minutes away

This is a hidden gem of crystal white sand beach that is protected from the islands making waters very calm and cold. There are warm river waters for kids big and small to play in and plenty of exploring and beach combing. Arrive early since parking is limited and restricted along the side of the road and taking the camper down the end of this road is not recommended. If you have your car and can get there early, you will not be disappointed.

Pine Grove Park, Milton 10 minutes away

Pine Grove Park is a must see if you want to experience old growth forest dotted with majestic rhododendrons and other specimen trees hidden throughout the park located along the Mersey River. This park was established by the former Bowater Mersey Paper mill and was donated to the Region of Queens. It’s an amazing place to take a walk in the woods without going too far, just outside of Liverpool on the way to Milton. Dogs are permitted on a leash and the path is well maintained, there are many trails to explore and they all loop back to main path. When Rhododendrons are in full bloom, it’s an added bonus!
